Attention developers - the results of our poll (The specified item was not found.) are in and a majority of people are looking for Java! We're excited to announce that we've started a Java SDK project to help developers building on the Bulk API. The project is open source and currently supports the following operations :

  • Contact Exports
  • Contact Imports
  • Custom Object Exports
  • Custom Object Imports
  • Account Exports
  • Account Imports


Grab a copy from Github and check for updates.


Create Client

AccountInfo info = BulkClient.GetAccountInfo("site", "user", "password");
BulkClient client = new BulkClient("site", "user", "password",;



SearchResponse<Field> fields = client.ContactFieldClient().Search(searchTerm, page, count);



Contact Export

// instantiate a new instance of the client
// String baseUrl = BulkClient.GetAccountInfo(site, user, password);
BulkClient client = new BulkClient("site", "user", "password", "");

// define the list of fields to be included in the Export
// use : client.ContactFieldClient().Search(searchTerm, page, pageSize)
HashMap<String, String> fields = new HashMap<String, String>();
fields.put("C_EmailAddress", "{{Contact.Field(C_EmailAddress)}}");
fields.put("C_FirstName", "{{Contact.Field(C_FirstName)}}");

// define the filter criteria for the export
// use : client.ContactFilterClient().Search(searchTerm, page, pageSize)
ExportFilter filter = new ExportFilter();
filter.filterRule = FilterRuleType.member;
filter.membershipUri = "/contact/segment/4268";

// create the definition for the Export
Export export = new Export(); = "sample export";
export.fields = fields;
export.filter = filter;
export.secondsToAutoDelete = 3600;
export.secondsToRetainData = 3600;

Export exportResult = client.ContactExportClient().CreateExport(export);

// create the sync for the Export
Sync sync = new Sync();
sync.status = SyncStatusType.pending;
sync.syncedInstanceUri = exportResult.uri;

// check Sync results (use polling)
Sync syncResult = client.ContactExportClient().CreateSync(sync);

// retrieve the data
Data data = client.ContactExportClient().GetExportData(exportResult.uri);



A sample response for this call :

  "values": [
      "C_FirstName": "Fred",
      "C_EmailAddress": ""
      "C_FirstName": "T.J.",
      "C_EmailAddress": ""
      "C_FirstName": "Modern",
      "C_EmailAddress": "modern.mark@e..."



The Winter release is scheduled to include support for Exporting Activity Data and we'll aim to have it supported by this client on Day 1.
